The 2012 political campaign is yet to officially declare Mitt Romney as the presidential hopeful and the election is still a few months away but the issue of funding is already taking the lead when it comes to news worthy articles. The general elections are one of the most important elections in United States History and that could be due to the fact that every presidential hopeful is coming forward to stake their claim. Unless the candidate has the potential to raise million dollar combinations from the private sector, the chance of their success is almost non existent. Because all roads are pointing to Mitt Romney as the front runner, he has already begun raising money for his presidential coffers. Neither the President nor his potential replacement have plans of using the taxpayer funding to help them get to the finish line.
It never ceases to amaze me how much of a spotlight is placed on political financing for any of these campaigns and although the court system is in the process of a strong examination for one of our previous political hopefuls, it appears to be business as usual. Our government seems unconcerned with the fact that our financing is in such a disarray, then again that applies to both parties, lest you think I am choosing sides here. Our beloved president has a powerful system when it comes to raising money to help him retain his seat for another four years, that is of course if he can convince the same people that the mess we are in right now is not his fault.
